Ludhiana, October 13, 2012: Dayanand Medical College and Hospital today organised a 'spiritual musical concert' for stress relief and relaxation by world- renowned artiste from Australia- Dya Singh, who mesmerized the audience with his mystic charm.

While introducing the artiste to the audience, Dr Sanjeev Uppal said Dya Singh is acknowledged as the world's most significant singer/musician of the mystical musical tradition. Originally from Malaysia, Dya Singh has made a name for himself in the 'western' world for his special brand of spiritual world music mainly with western artistes. Dya Singh learnt the art of spiritual singing at the age of five, from his father,who too was a renowned spiritual singer.

Principal Dr Daljit Singh, present on the occasion,said that the medical profession has a high-stress quotient as doctors have long and gruelling working hours. It is important for them to break away from the hectic routine and find ways to de-stress.

Spiritual music is more a medium of education and worship than merely a source of entertainment, said Dya Singh. A true spiritual music touches everyone's spirit by uplifting peace of mind, harmonious living and most importantly, the internal happiness and self- contentment. Listening to such concerts provides emotional support to the audience and help them to make better human beings.

On the stage, Dya Singh was accompanied by some of the top musicians including Paramjot Singh (Longest non-stop tabla player in Guinness Book of Records), Sripal Singh on taoos, Hari Krishan on synthesiser , Rakesh kumar on Flute and Ravi Ji on percussion (auto-pad).
